(Gatineau, Canada) • Authentic Italian food at one of the best restaurants in Gatineau. This gem is worth a visit whenever you are in the area or crossing the bridge from Ottawa.
Ambiance: The restaurant is big, it has a nice patio, several tables and booths, elegant decor and a bright, very comfortable atmosphere.
Service: Exceptional. Warm, friendly, bilingual and prompt. A very charismatic hostess greeted us and brought us to a table right away. Our waitress was fast coming to get our orders, clear the dishes when we were done and the bill after. She also checked in on us and refilled our glasses without us asking.
Cleanliness: The tables, chairs, utensils and glasses were spotless.
Food wait time: Pretty fast.
Food presentation: Very well displayed and appetizing.
Portion: Good size, we were satisfied with our orders. The gnocchi is labeled as an appetizer but it comes with the right amount of gnocchi and loads of sauce, you can get bread from the buffet and scoop it. Delicious!
Taste: Simply amazing! We had Small Kale Salad al limone, gnocchi and dessert. I love the bread station where you can toast your bread on grill and put different spreads on it. The soup of the day was very good and the salad so fresh it was delicious. The gnocchi was a hit and I will definitely order it again. For dessert we got the dolci Strawberry shortcake and Napolitani. Be aware that they are very small and I am not sure worth the price.
Price: On the high side. Worth it for the quality of food and the excellent service!
